MOST RECENT

Had a wonderful time with @sheisnana last night at @gravityballet 🇭🇰! Tana is such a sweet person to accompany me all the way late even after a long day of work. We went to Lady M for afternoon tea and chatted non stop before class💕 I think recent adult ballerina meet ups abroad 🌎(week ago with @ymtheresa who I still miss) have really opened my eyes and heart to embrace ballet in a different way, I think because having the chance to meet and spend time with these wonderful friends who share the same passion enables me to cherish and enjoy this ballet journey more than ever🌈🌷

So exhausted after 2 hours of ballet...the intermediate/advanced class is brutal!!! Some of it I couldn't follow as I haven't learned all the French words for various techniques etc so had No idea what we were doing and some of if was just too hard for me to get my old head round yet. I fell out of penchés and hurt my shoulder abit but im fine. I just got straight back into my penchés again hoping that no one noticed is called out of it. (We wasn't allowed to touch the floor or the barre) my Pointe class went abit better than last weeks. I did more this week but my legs and feet were in absolute agony from class so I had to keep stopping. The amazing and strict teacher said she wants me to do 100 releves on pointe to build strength!!! Think I'll pass out!! So I'm hoping to skip ashtanga on Wednesday and go to ballet instead to get another pointe class in whilst I still can. (If I can still walk tomorrow ha ha) every part of me hurts 🙈😭 I definitely need to wrap my toes and put my dancer dots on before class as I'm far to slow getting ready for pointe class. And I've decided I want a portable fold away barre for Xmas so I store it by the freezer between uses. That way I can still practice my releves and echappes at the barre on pointe.
One thing I've realised after taking these balletxtra summer classes (which are way above my level) is that they're going to make my usual classes feel like a stroll in the park after these seriously hard-core classes. Never been pushed so hard on my entire life!! I am.. completely.. shattered!!!

is a little throwback to dancing with theses beauties back in Berlin. I miss them so much! This week gave me so much energy, motivation and it simply filled my heart with joy. Loving dance is one thing but sharing it with amazing people is even better! @fbcballerina @my.ballet.love
Love this leo by @ballet.rosa so much!

Happy 😊 .

Last week when I started dancing my Flora variation again, my body felt so heavy and it felt impossible to dance the Flora variation on stage again.
.
.
Seems the reason my body felt heavy was not because of my actual weight (which has actually dropped this past month due to the outrageous heat wave in 🇯🇵), it was because my body was not connected. I posted how I had great lessons last Saturday with my teacher. Thanks to that lesson, my body now feels the center more. My body is more centralized with a thin strong center and when I practiced Flora with music after lessons today, it felt so good😆❤️
.
.
To tell you the truth, I was bit depressed last week and I was angry with myself for forgetting the reason that I had decided to perform Flora again. It was because the actual performance in June was not as good as I had hoped it would be. I got nervous and I was stiff. It was only like 60% of what I had practiced. But the past 2 months, I had not really practiced the variation seriously and it was in even worse quality than that 60% performance... .
.
So today, I think I’m almost back to where I was 2 months ago. I better get practicing seriously since the 2nd and 3rd Flora is coming up in Sep and Oct🙈

Life is about the moments that take your breath away. This was one of mine. .
... and when she feels the music (or sound of the waves!) touch her soul, then she will dance...

Приём, котятки 🤓
Кто интересовался занятиями в @olgarepina_dance? Кто желал воочию понаблюдать как мы косячим на станке и середине? Кто хотел посмотреть какой у нас на классе уровень? Кому интересно глянуть на всех нас, красоток и красавцев (коих мало)?
В общем, мы планируем провести открытый урок по классике (станок-середина-пальцы) 02.09 (воскресенье) к 13:00 😋
Я буду рада, если вы придете посмотреть. Всегда приятно работать для кого-то, чем, как обычно, для себя и в стол 😉
Посмотрим, кто и чему научился за всё время, да?

Finally got round to ordering myself some of this especially for my ballet classes. Hopefully it's subtle and I like it. Looking forward to trying it out once it arrives.

PROGRESSING BALLET TECHNIQUE .
Back in October, I attended a @progressingballettechnique workshop to become a certified teacher in the technique. It has been devised by Marie Walton-Mahon to facilitate ballet technique and build correct muscles and lines without the impact of gravity. It really is a fantastic program and helps activate student’s muscle memory. This exercise for example uses a small Pilates ball. Placed between the ankles with stretched legs and feet in 1st position. Then you slowly rotate your legs around until you’re in 4th position. You can really feel your turn out muscles engaging to hold the rotation in both legs whilst maintaining pressure on the ball so it doesn’t drop. Give it a go. Way harder then it looks.
